BROOKHAVEN – The Adams County Christian School junior and girls soccer teams arrived at Brookhaven Academy last Thursday afternoon to play against the Lady Cougars in their opening MAIS Division II South games.

However, Mother Nature had other ideas as bad weather ensured that these games would not take place.

“We got there. We are ready. The parents were ready. They had a little rain. Your AD (Sporting Director Anthony Hart) canceled the game, ”said Pam Weatherly Williams, Lady Rebels head coach. “We had over 40 players from the JV and Varsity teams who traveled there. The girls were disappointed. “

Williams said the two schools are working on rescheduling the game to a later point in the season.

ACCS hosts its annual shootout tournament on Saturday, which started at 8 a.m. Among the games that took place was a Division II South home game against Oak Forest Academy which they believed was scheduled for 10 a.m., but that could change.

Williams said last Friday morning that both Parklane Academy and Washington School had to abandon the tournament due to injuries and had to repeat the tournament schedule.

“You don’t have enough players. The Starkville Academy had already fallen, too, ”said Williams. “Park Place (Christian School) and Heritage (Academy) rely on players, but they still plan to travel.”

Williams added that the Heritage Academy had been reduced to nine players but still had plans to make the long Columbus to Natchez journey. She said the Lady Patriots would most likely be playing in a JV game.

“We still have a lot of competition. We still have several teams. We expect a full day tournament, ”said Williams.
